Our pond is four years old, but as many fellow ponders know
we started out with a smaller pond first. When we saw the beauty
of the fish, flowers, and waterfalls, we got the urge to enlarge
it just a bit. Our overall goal was to improve the most important
factor, a healthy clean environment for our fish.
I have tried in many ways to make the pond a bit better as
many fellow ponders have done, and know you understand when I
say it is almost a never ending project, but the beauty and pleasure
is worth the time and effort. The one thing I wish I would have
done first is join the NFKPC because many of our members, meetings,
and speakers have been a great source of information.
